ELMS: The e-academy License Management System

Create a Download Center for Your Students

The MSDN Academic Alliance has partnered with e-academy Inc. to offer a software distribution, tracking and authentication system to MSDNAA Program Administrators. ELMS (e-academy License Management System) for MSDNAA was designed specifically to address the challenges posed to Program Administrators in the distribution of software licensed under the MSDNAA Program.

Membership in the MSDNAA entitles you to use ELMS for the distribution and management of MSDNAA software and faculty at no additional cost.

What is ELMS?

ELMS is a Web-based software distribution and management application hosted by e-academy. As a turnkey system, ELMS enables you to authenticate eligible students and faculty online and automate the ordering and distribution of MSDN AA software to students and faculty.

ELMS is available to all Program Administrators worldwide, and is currently available in five languages: English, French, Spanish, German and Japanese. ELMS is available to your end-users in the following eight languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Turkish and Russian. When you request your ELMS, please be sure to indicate your language preference.
